Pending Litigation to Delay Launch of Generic Asacol


Boehringer Ingelheim’s Roxane Laboratories will postpone until at least November planned sales of its generic version of Asacol, an ulcerative colitis drug, to resolve a patent infringement suit over the drug. In a deal reached recently with Procter & Gamble Pharmaceuticals and Medeva Pharma Suisse — the brand manufacturers of Asacol (mesalamine) — Roxane agreed to delay the drug’s launch to extend the trial’s discovery phase in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.
